Ok this is weird. Bear with me. I went looking for Obama images to make a quick poster idea come to life. I found this site, www.anti-christ.com, whose "theme" this week is "Is Obama the Anti-Christ?".
Total nutters, these folks, but I couldn't resist browsing once I saw that… Read full post »

And in the original version, sans "Yes You Can"/
There is a cartoon melodrama to it, to the German techno-punk
dronebeat echoing off the icy peak at the end of lake.
The screeching operatic yodeling, real screams of pain, even, all mix with atonal two-notes switches by base and guitar. Creepshow percusssion, very suspenseful. Something is w… Read full post »
The entire song, without a doubt, but especially the opening and ending solos, on "Machine Gun", Jimi Hendrix, 1970, from Band of Gyspies.
This was Jimi at the height of his art. I listen to the bootleg and otherwise released versions of Machine Gun, all from that last, doomed tour,… Read full post »
I am alone in the house. A new sitter, an older woman, is out back. In the bathroom I finish, and I feel that funny feeling. I go to my father’s room, I sit on the far side of the bed, pulling out his Playboys.
I love the thrill I… Read full post »
Here's what Noah counts: 2. 2. 2. 2. etc. Not much addition but
plenty of multiply, later.
(Also: Noah was not a Jew. True Story.)
The Law was also given to Noah, hence the Noachic Laws. God said I won't flood you again, and kill everyone, if you just live like this from… Read full post »
I don't know why we are here, exactly. I am in charge of making
this work, so I hold her hand for eight hours after the surgery,
for a light year past palm sweat and ok-enough-now-you-can-let-go.
I just hold on, and when she wakes up she doesn't let go
Her uterus… Read full post »
I only want to write.
I don't want to manage schedules or prioritize tasks or apologize to vendors or solve code problems or document procedures or line-itemize deliverables. I don't want to sweat the mortgage or ever again have to fear for my kids' safety.
What's more I want to write, and NOT… Read full post »
Civilization did not start with the Jews or the Egyptians or
the, um, Ur. It began with a meal, properly divided. Athasthalia is
the ancient Greek word for restless wickedness, but it literally
means "aggressive, greedy eating", as demonstrated by primitive
Dais is also ancient Greek. It origi… Read full post »
I recently read that getting angry makes you stupider.
Temporarily, one would hope. Not hard at all to measure, turns out.
Easy to test. So I believe it. It feels true, too.
So how come, when we are happy, and thus smarter, why don't we...look out? Avoid anger?
This is like asking why… Read full post »
In the bad year after we left KC, for St. Louis, the year my mother ended her addiction to Benzedrine, in a hospital, flattened by clinical Reds and cracked up with electro-convulsive therapy, that June before she was committed, when she had exhausted herself cooking casseroles at 4 am and playing… Read full post »
Every Religion gets perfection.
And promotes their type. All religions do. Lots of noise and confusion, but we live long enough and start to get the General Types. It is possible to imagine a Best Person Ever at ease in every religious tradition. But only one system allows us to find the… Read full post »
Southwest of Kansas City the high plains stutter to a stop against the crumbling dignity of the Ozarks. It is not the midwest, exactly. Not the South, not the Southwest, not quite. It is where I was raised, a land of unnameable and endless wind, and the mighty and slow undulation… Read full post »

The small explosion. The initial trajectory as the
steel-jacketed bullet leaves the muzzle, perfectly.
From a cloud of dove-grey the bullet gleams, awake at last; it passes the sill, makes a shadow like a puff of soot along the cracked paint. The bullet grinds, spirals, steadies, hums, out into the op… Read full post »
At homes along the highway,
my mom and dad talking in the front seat,
I used to watch for lamps in warm commas,
the white pindots of porchlight, the cozy,
love-drenched, midnight snack homes,
tomatoes under cheesecloth
whole-chicken soup when you're sick homes.

We live among angels in masks, and never see each other clearly.
That is, we live with humans.
If anyone solicits you, with "sincerity", and has a little "story" to tell you, tries to make you "understand", how they "feel" for you, about you: Flee. Surrender the field.
These are dark masks indeed… Read full post »
Israel errs, by omission and commission, small and at times large errors, that result in the death of innocents. They even calculate, in ways abhorrent to many: if we blow up this pickup truck full of Hamas missiles, in this crowded courtyard ringed with markets and apartment complexes, more innocent… Read full post »

What I love about Popper's
Falsifiability idea is that it led me to several breakthrus,
especially regarding Free Will.
I never understood the debate about Free Will until I framed it via Popper. I mean: Free Will is manifest (he he), isn't… Read full post »

Most Americans have fuzzy ideas about Indian/Asian/Eastern religions, and I am certainly ignorant as well, so the following caveat applies: I am talking about Karma as a philosophical idea, and a social construc… Read full post »
As a young man, well, even as a very young man, truth told, I "understood" Marilyn Monroe, Jayne Mansfield, Diana Dors. My intuition was well along by kindergarten. I remember "waking", at 5, as if from a pleasant reverie, to the queries of Sally Todd, on her own mat near… Read full post »

I think at times
I am the genius
I think I am,
I think in fact
I am NOT the genius
I think I am.
I sit at the seafoam table with my glass of port and a small peach, uneaten. Rickie Lee Jones, in my ears, bends and slides, finishing off We Belong Together. Once again port has given me moments of perfect indifference, and I imagine every dip of my head is just-right hipster… Read full post »
